's pews and considered him a mentor and the only exception was sean hannity who had him on to talk about the black value system that basically says that the way any blacks who achieve economic success are being bought off by the capitalist system and are to be shunned. but in my stories, i reported for the first time on reverend white's sermons, saying that the government created aids to kill off blacks, that israel is a racist country, that the government created killers to kill off minorities throughout the world, et cetera, et cetera. and also that the same reverend white gave awards to farrah kahn for lifetime achievement. who picked up those stories? nobody. nobody touched it. i mentioned the stories to a cnn rerter at a party and she had not seen the stories and she said that's amazing. of course, i could never run a story like that. i would be accused of being bias against barack obama by my network. finally, after sending the stories to friends i know in mainstream media, tv networks and newspapers, after about two months, i did a "wall street journal" op ed quoting the sermons a

. >> guest: but you can go to many research projects, the pew research center, this last election clearly showed that the press favored obama. the media research center over the years has shown over the years that white house correspondents, over-80% of them have been democrats. this last fall the ombudsman woman from the "washington post" wrote her paper that her paper favored obama clearly over mccain. that's right. >> guest: and there are so many instances of media bias. talk radio is the only opposition to that bias. and that's why it's done so well. if it hadn't been for talk radio, we would not have known the other side of the iraqi war. we would not have exposed the perils of national healthcare. we would most likely had a immigration bill passing through our congress and senate. and without conservative talk radio, there would be no opposition to this. and clearly that's what the obama administration wants. no opposition. >> host: the ideological angle is one part of the equation. the other part of the equation, brian, is the commercial part because what the liberals don't want to

's an outliar. look at all of the national polls you've had nbc and npr polls at 53% approval. pew at 54. time and cnn at 56. ipo and gallup at 58. the average is around 54%. but what you see is there is a general trend downward. downward. and what you see is the president's numbers kind of yo yo up and down. and they -- but the pattern you're seeing is that when his numbers go up, they generally don't go up as high as his previous highs, and then when they drop low, they do drop lower than his previous lows. so it's sort of a ratcheting down effect that's happening. he's sort of within the average of normal presidents at this point. but, clearly, his disapproval ratings are consistently going up, and he's not in a good place right now. >> do the better than expected numbers on unemployment, and the stock market gains, does that do anything to help turn this around for the president? >> i think any time you have a lousy economy, whether you inherited it or not, it's basically a weight on your shoulders, it kind of keeps holding you down. and that every month, the president's in office he becom

its day pew in late 2010. joining us live to talk about it, the ceo of good morning. >> good morning. >> the epa released a statement saying it has not tested the volt so, therefore, cannot confirm the fuel economy values claimed by gm. in your mind, 230 miles a gallon, is this gm claim for real? >> we compare engines to hybrids. now we're looking at the volt which is a sort of in your house goes out power, you still have a generator that you can turn on. that's sort of what the chchevy is. last night we were at an unveil. our vice president from nissan was there and i asked him about the knnissan new plug in electr. he said that they would get 360 miles per gallon. so it tells you that the e process is changing the way that they are calculating miles per gallon. >> i'm curious. do you think as people listen to all this, are they paying attention? because americans love big cars. the volt is not going to fit the bill there. are americans going to buy into this whole volt thing? >> i think it's interesting, i was watching a cnn poll. 70% said they would buy

right now to show you how bad this thing is for the president. it's a new pew poll. two-thirds of the country think the president obama and republican leaders are not working together. among those two-thirds, 17% of them blame the president compared to 7% back in february. so he's losing ground there. republicans are holding it just under 30%. now for party favorability. look at this. the democrats are down below 50% for the first time. republicans holding at 40%. in other words, their slash and burn attacks on the president haven't hurt them an inch. that would tell me as a republican, if i were a republican activist, i would say keep on the fire, keep the flame thrower aimed directly at the white house. we're not losing, he is. >> well, what's -- what's amazing to me about those numbers is that the republicans are seeing that gain or at least devaluing the president's numbers without really offering an alternative. in other words, it's not as if there's a gop plan out there that's gaining favor. it's that his is being torn down. >> so do only harm is their oath. do onl

in the pew poll, the president did take a hit on the whole issue of professor gates and sergeant crowley steps into that. came in on thursday. following the drum beat, as he invited them for a beer at the white house thursday. they met in the rose garden. vice president biden joined them. in the end, only sergeant crowley came out and spoke. >> i think what you have today, two gentlemen agree to disagree on a particular issue. i don't think that we spent too much time dwelling on the past. we intent a lot of time discussing the future. >> and i think in the future, cynthia tucker, the president probably had to do what he did once he called for it last friday put but now he wants this behind him? >> he absolutely does. it's so distracted from the major issue of health care. i happen to agree with what the president said. i think sergeant crowley did act stupidly because i still don't know what gates' crime was. but the president had no business speaking to us when it was going to cause a major distraction. he has spent most of the hour discussing health care, yet, the news reports the nex
